LOCKHEED RECEIVES $37.8 MILLION CONTRACT TO SUPPORT U.S. NAVY'S DEEP SUBMERGENCE PROGRAM

 HOUSTON, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Engineering & Sciences Co.'s Marine Systems Program Office in San Diego, has received a contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command to provide engineering, manufacturing and field support to the U.S. Navy Deep Submergence Program. The one-year contract, with four one-year options, has a total value of $37.8 million.
 Specifically, Lockheed will be supporting the Navy's Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicles (DSRVs), its Deep Submergence Vehicles, and the USS Dolphin, based in San Diego and the submarine, NR-1, based in New London, Conn.
 The two 50-foot, 40-ton DSRVs were built by Lockheed Missiles & Space Co. of Sunnyvale, Calif. With a maximum depth capability of 5,000 feet and speed of 4.5 knots, the submersibles are designed to rescue crews from submarines trapped on the ocean floor.
 Lockheed first established operations in San Diego in the early 1960s to conduct underwater acoustic research and has provided technical support for the DSRVs since their delivery to the Navy in the early 1970s.
 Headquartered in Houston, Lockheed Engineering & Sciences Co. provides a broad range of high technology support services in engineering, the sciences, data processing and test and evaluation to the Navy, the National Aeronautical and Space Administration and other government agencies. The company employs about 4,000 people nationwide.
